Real Madrid reaches league semifinals

ISTANBUL - Cristiano Ronaldo scored twice as Real Madrid, aiming to become kings of Europe for the 10th time, foiled a dramatic fightback by Galatasaray on Tuesday to reach the Champions League semifinals.

Ronaldo, the top scorer in the competition, took his goal tally for the season to 11 to make sure that Jose Mourinho’s side went through to the last four 5-3 on aggregate despite losing the second leg 3-2 in Istanbul.

“This match will serve as an example for us in the future,” Ronaldo told Spanish broadcaster TVE.
